By achieving the APM Corporate Accreditation, which is valid for three years, Doosan Babcock joins a select list of 51 organisations, including several UK government departments, who have managed to achieve the required level to attain APM accreditation.
The full list of accredited companies include: Arup, Costain, EDF, Magnox, Shell, Sellafield, Siemens, Thales and more.
Andy Hunt Doosan Babcock’s CEO said: “We are committed to ensuring operational excellence across our entire organisation and the cultivation of world-class project management expertise is a core component in achieving that. The APM certification provides significant recognition of our efforts.”
Attaining the accreditation involved the setting up of the PMO Academy (PMOA), which supports high-quality APM training and pathways to accreditation, as well as running regular APM framework workshops. The company has also produced the Doosan Babcock Business Absolutes guidebook, to promote a consistent pan-organisational approach to project management, aligned to the company’s strategic objectives.
Andy added: “Efficient project management offers so much value. It allows us to promote best practice, learn from our mistakes and provides a roadmap for continuous improvement and increased customer satisfaction.
“Our ultimate aim is not only to run all of our projects on time and within budget, but to foster an environment for innovation that allows us to keep raising the bar. Our involvement with APM facilitates these efforts, giving us access to specialist tools and recognised methodologies that help us develop our people and promote best practice across the business.”
In reflection of its commitment to people development, and its support of APM, Doosan Babcock is proud to be sponsoring the Young Project Professional of the Year Award at the APM Awards 2014.
